Bippys WHDLoad Project

As I mentioned in the Lemonade thread I am working on a solution to getting WHDLoad games/demos running from frontends.

This has proved to be problematic until now...

I have discussed the inclusion of this and it is confirmed with 2 frontends (Lemonade is one)

anyway here are some screenshots of the PREF making program and for the launcher for each game

This wont make a lot of sense until you see it running..

Here are shots of the game frontend.. this works off a prefs file with all info included.. You select your options and the frontend does the rest





*note not all of the WHDLoad functions are included yet.. only the more common.. if anybody requires a specific function including then let me know and I'll do my best (BUTTONWAIT is one example!)

here is the pref making program.. it auto scans the slave and tries to read the header info.. If the slave uses an offset different to the preset couple then you can check where the header starts with a hex viewer and then adjust accordingly (tho this is only recommended for those who know what they are doing)

It would be really cool if you could controll it with the joystick.

Hmm... not too sure how to implement this with gadtools etc...

Any ideas (this has been done in amiblitz but using system structures etc.. mainly!)

I have released 2 tools and a amigaguide for that

http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?threadid=19691

Slave and installed version are found on your Hard drive
and you can launch game/Demo just clicking on this name in a amigaguide
(a search command is added the amigaguide to seek game with parametters as number of players, aga, phazer, 4-joy adaptator, type of game, ...)

Games/demos must be just placed in sorting directories/ and you must use env:WHDautolaunch.prefs fileto predefine parameters)

example of directories:
a/
b/
B/
Bi/
C/
...
Z/

If several version of the game are in the same folder (french/GB/AGA/ECS..)

You can pre-define your priority parametters for launch whdload by example:
aga+fr
if not
aga+gb
if not
ecs+fr

etc....

you can choise also just open game folder... or open a requester which ask to you if ou want launch game or open game's folder, etc...
:---------------------
your frontends seems interresting too

but must you predefine all parametters, or defaults priority parametters can be set?

I don't understand the Artura "seems to have hardcoded paths" bit. WHDLoad cannot access hardcoded paths, all files have to be relative to the directory the files are in, and there are 3 versions of Artura.

Darn, I saw this appear on "Unread Posts", started at top of thread thinking "Wow, this looks cool" without spotting the dates. I know Bip is hugely busy with renaming but this certainly seemed a cool project!
